FMR Silk Me Back Arterial Kimono writing

Gorgeous kimono featuring the human arterial system designed by FMR for an exhibition in France, called Silk Me Back at the Nesle Gallery. Created to support victims of the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster, this exhibition featured 25 stunning kimonos like the one above. All of the kimono’s will be auctioned off on February 9th, 2013 in the Westin-Paris Vendôme hotel in Paris. Profits will be donated to KNK Japan/Children Without Borders and the Furusato Project.

If you look closely, you can see that the arterial system on the silk kimono is all handwritten with text from the Buddhist Sutta.  Stunning detail down to the drops of blood on the collar!

Read more about the exhibit and view more of the kimonos at Pink Julep who attended the exhibit back in October.
